State-by-State Roundup of Cars and Trucks Built in the U.S. Today
The U.S. has more automotive factories than it does states.
There are more than 50 automotive factories currently operating in the country. Together, they produce more than 120 models, with a few more on the way. That number — along with the total number of vehicles produced here — is likely to increase in the coming years as carmakers move EV production to the states to make their models eligible for the new EV tax credit. For now, here’s the list of some of the cars, trucks, SUVs, and vans assembled in the United States. (Note that automakers sometimes build popular models at two or more locations.)
Alabama Auto Plant in Lincoln
• Honda Odyssey. Minivans are quintessentially American, so it makes sense Honda would build its here.
• Honda Passport. Honda replaced the Passport with the Pilot in the 2000s only to revive the nameplate in 2019 to expand its crossover portfolio.
• Honda Pilot. Honda redesigned its three-row crossover for 2023.

Mercedes-Benz Vans in Ladson
• Mercedes-Benz Sprinter. The first U.S.-market Sprinter vans were manufactured in Germany, disassembled, shipped to the U.S., and reassembled in South Carolina, all so Mercedes could avoid paying the so-called chicken tax. By building the vans in Ladson, Benz can skip this rigmarole.
